The First Miss Priss Monday and a Kobo NF Promo

Alright, so who doesn’t need a picture of a cute dog to start off their week?  That’s why I’m going to try to start Miss Priss Mondays where I post a few photos of my pup each Monday. (Pup and I had lunch with my grandma today, which is why this is going up a little later in the day than I’d planned.)

This is her from the very first day she came to live with me after she’d been attacked by my mother’s other dog.  If you look closely you can see the little mark on her nose where he bit her.  It’s hard to believe she was so small once that she could fit under her water bowl holder.

She’s grown a bit since then.  Here she is with one of her favorite hedgehog toys.  Doesn’t matter the size, she loves every hedgehog toy I’ve ever given her.

And, since I have a few books in the promo and they sent me links I can share, Kobo is having a 99 cent non-fiction promotion over the next two weeks that will be running in Canada, the United Kingdom, U.S., Australia, and New Zealand.  (Scroll down to find the 99 cent deals promo section on the page.)Twitter

My writing advice book (The Beginning Writer’s Guide to What You Should Know by M.L. Humphrey) and one of my dating advice books (You Have a Date, Don’t F It Up by Cassie Leigh) are included, so now’s a good time to pick them up if either one sounds interesting.

So Here We Go

This is my new blog to hopefully consolidate my scattered pen names into one place. I’m not sure right now how often I’ll be publishing here, although I think I will aim to post “puppy” photos on Mondays.  (I call my dog a puppy still even though she’s four years old and over a hundred pounds…)

As I mentioned in my about me, I have way too many pen names, which is not a self-publishing strategy I would recommend to anyone because you can’t properly keep up with any of them and it makes it harder to gain momentum.

But it does fit with my overall personality.  (I triple-majored in college because everything seemed interesting to me and I didn’t see why I had to choose even though the last two years of undergrad were probably the hardest years of my life since I was also working full-time, too.)  And even though I know it’s not a winning strategy I don’t see myself changing anytime soon.

So you’ll probably see a mix of life rants, financial advice, writing thoughts and advice, and who knows what else on here.  If I’m really good about it those will be consistent enough you can count on finding something here a couple times a week.  Let’s say Mondays for puppy photos, Wednesdays for random deep thoughts, and Fridays for something AMS-related for now and see how it goes from there?

Sure, why not.
